Farm On: John Deere and Telogis to Enable Connected Farming on Verizon Network

By Ken Briodagh November 02, 2016

At its annual business conference, Telogis, a Verizon company, announced that it is partnering with John Deere to help companies harvest tasty data and insights from connected John Deere equipment, with the goal of filling bellies with cost savings, efficiency and productivity.

Through this alliance, Telogis and John Deere will enable existing and future mutual customers to leverage built-in connectivity on John Deere products. Customers will benefit from access to a richer data set that will help to eliminate manual data entry and generate deeper insights into customers’ operations.

“Equipment – not just vehicles – represent an enormous investment for mobile businesses, and it’s more important than ever to ensure that equipment is running safely, and that it’s out there earning money and delivering value and ROI every day,” said Jeff Cohen, VP, Asset and Security Solutions, Telogis, A Verizon Company. “By understanding how the equipment is being used, how many hours it’s running and where there are opportunities to maximize uptime and utilization, customers can identify opportunities to drive cost and time savings, plus productivity and efficiency in every aspect of their mobile businesses.”

Customers will be able to order parts and services or contact local John Deere dealers for questions, appointments and equipment troubleshooting, while using the Telogis Mobile Resource Management (MRM) software platform for more efficient jobsite use alerts and reporting on engine hours, equipment use efficiency, fuel consumption and details on diagnostic codes.

“Telogis’ successful track record working with both off highway and on highway customers gave us great confidence that this is the right strategic relationship to bring these mission-critical technologies and services to our customers,” said Jena Holtberg-Benge, Director, Worksight Solutions, John Deere. “By working in tandem with Telogis, we’re giving businesses the ability to run their entire mobile equipment business on one comprehensive software platform with one login for all their vehicles and equipment – whether it’s John Deere or a mixed fleet.”

The offering will be available to organizations of any size through connected John Deere equipment or through authorized dealers through the end of 2016, and each new piece of equipment will have access to both JDLink and Telogis.
